I'll start...
I'm Tonya
LO is Kaiden and he will be 17 months on August 8...
I dont know where the time has gone...
Even now I still get tears in my eyes just thinking about him cause he is so awesome...even after today when he had a total of 10 minutes of napping (oh that was rough!)...
He is finally starting to talk, unfortunately, he says "no no no" to everything we ask him He has 10 words now (we counted tonight), and he doesnt walk anymore, he runs - everywhere...and is fast (poor me has to keep up with him)...and has no fear (poor me has to keep him from killing himself!)...
I realized today that I hadnt taken a picture of him in a month - bad me! so here he is on his daddy's shoulders


We are TTC another also...trying since February/March (first PP ovulation), loss in April...still trying, gonna do 3 more cycles of natural with monitoring progesterone, if not PG, then we will do medical assistance again for the November cycle...if my progesterone is as crappy as it was last month (1.1 at 7dpo and a 7 day LP) then we might do medical sooner...

For those of you who are pregnant:
Who are you? You may call me Kate, or katie, i'll answer to both!
How far along are you? 9w3d
What is up with you? oh not much, spending my time lugging around a still bfing baby and trying not to puke. It's way harder this time...
Pictures of your bump/nursery/ultrasounds? so far just bump pics, hopefully u/s pics soon, but i heart the hb for the first time this week!This pic is from sunday:


For those of you who have given birth:
Who are you/who is your LO? My name's still the same, though tyler's taken to calling me mamamamamama, which is apparently also synonymous with food. Obviously my little monkey's name is Tyler.
How old is your LO? He's 9 months 1 week and 1 day old
Any good stories/milestones? oh geeze, he's a laugh a minute. We have a serious clown on our hands. He's standing, trying to walk, saying hi, mama, and a few other tyler words that i don't necessarily get.
Pictures of your LO?




many of you have prob seen this on fb, but this is my fave pic. It was taken in florida in june about 3 days before i found out i was pregnant:

For those of you who are pregnant:
Who are you?Danielle
How far along are you? 9 weeks today!
What is up with you? Nothing really new with the pregnancy. My next appt is not until August 30th and I think I'll be between 13 or 14 weeks by then. It seems so far away.

Here's my belly pic from today. Nothing too exciting yet.


I can't wait to show updates of the nursery but that we won't get started on for a little while. Once D's roommate moves out in September we'll start doing basic stuff like painting and putting up crown molding. It's not a huge room though but the baby won't know lol.

I'm Lyz and I try to be as active on here as I can but it's really hard working a FT job and my private practice at night.

My daughter is Bella and she's 21 months. She's awesome She is talking up a storm and loves to help mommy do things. She loves to walk around with her babydoll, feed the baby her sippy cup, etc. I can't believe she's almost 2!! I'm starting to plan her 2nd birthday party and it's going to be The Fresh Beat Band theme....her FAVORITE!!! Her most recent pic is in my siggy from a wedding we went to in about a month ago.

We are going to start TTC for #2 this time next year. I always envisioned our kiddos closer together but it isn't in the cards for us and I'm ok with that. She'll be 3 1/2 years old when our next one is due (as long as it doesn't take me long to get preggo) and it'll be nice to have one out of diapers! I'll be honest, I miss being pregnant!! I absolutely loved it and can't wait to do it again

For those of you who have given birth:
Who are you/who is your LO? Amy Munchkin is MaryBeth
How old is your LO? 8 months 4 weeks
Any good stories/milestones? Kind of a gross story, but a funny one. For my graduation we'd gone out to eat with family(19 inn our party) at Longhorn Steakhouse. Well we fed MB while we were waiting for our food to come. I'd had this thought that I really should change her clothes because she was in a very cute little dress and I didn't want her to blowout her diaper in it. Said awww she won't blowout her diaper, boy how WRONG was I. DH had to come home and get the other carseat, it was so bad. We used the whole travel container of wipes cleaning her up. Thankfully I never leave home without spare clothes!!! OHh and part of what makes it funny is when I was about her age, my mom and dad were on their way to an older cousin's wedding I did the same thing. They were even stopped to eat.

Her latest milestone are finally sitting herself up, she's been able to sit up for months but you had to put her down sitting. She's pulling up and getting close to standing on her own. She runs all over in her walker and says mam(occasionally) dada, baba(bottle), ggggg(grandma), and is starting on pawpaw.

Pictures of your LO?

MaryBeth loves to shop, she tries to pull things off the shelf. She also will take your hand and point it to what she wants.

Her first trip to a children's museum. Minnesota Children's Museum while we were on vacation.

4th pic. Her first fireworks show. She didn't get scared at all. She sat in my lap and enjoyed them. That is of course me and Dh with her.

I'm Valerie
My LOs will be 2 in 2 weeks
I was telling Eiley to stop doing something recently, except I could see her face to know which kid it was. I said "Arya don't touch that. Or Eiley. Or whoever you are." Eiley look at me and says "Arya". I said "You're Eiley." She replied "No Arya" She has no clue she's an ID twin yet, but she does know that everyone confuses who is who.

A


E


We haven't prevented in a year now, but I didn't get AF back until Jan. I've had one loss since then, which is amazing considering how long it took us to get prego the first time. I started back with my acupuncturist almost 4 weeks ago now, so I'm hoping it'll work as well as last time and I'll be prego with a sticky bean within a couple months.

I'm Lee Ann and lo is Julie. She is 14 months on Monday. She is so smart and pretty! I have a recent story....

we were out at the grocery store about 2 or so months ago and she was having some coughing issues that was causing her to vomit. while we were in the dairy aisle, she began a coughing fit and subsequently started vomiting...and everyone in the store ignored us! People were walking by picking up eggs and milk and not once looked at her or me...and she was loudly going "hhhhhhuuuuuuaaaaahhhhh, hhhhhuuuuuaaaahhhhh, hhhhhhuuuuaaaaahhhhhhh." I then ran down a ways (where I could still see her) to try and find an employee for help and noone! I finally caught the attention of two ladies that ignored the whole thing because I was pulling out every wipe I had in my diaper bag to clean her and cover the floor and one lady said she notified an employee and although we waited, no one ever showed up, so we hurriedly went to the checkout and got out of there. And I wasn't embarrassed at all about it. It's funny thinking about it.

She still hates the carseat and screams in it, so we have yet to go on any trips out of town. And she only sits in the cart and/or stroller for short time periods and then needs to get out and walk, so grocery or shopping trips are typically LONG! It's a fun adventure with Julie the Explorer.

I'm Jess and my LO is Kenz (short for Mackenzie for those that don't know us). Kenz is going to be 7 months old a week from tomorrow and I cannot believe how fast time has flown. I knew it would but WOW! Hmmm milestones/good stories... what does it say about me that I can't remember at this moment in time?! Let's see, she's working on sitting up on her own. Unless she is leaning forward with her hands on her legs she usually tips over. I've been putting her in her bumbo to help her get used to the position. We've also recently got her going in the pool regularly. She wasn't crazy about it the first couple of times but by the 3rd she decided she liked it. So with this crazy hot weather we're having we've been going to my parents pool a lot!

Great idea for a thread!! I haven't responded much lately, but I do lurk and love seeing updates and pictures of everyone's bumps and LOs

Who are you/who is your LO? I'm Tina, she's Mari

How old is your LO? 21 months, where does the time fly??

Any good stories/milestones? Her language skills have started to explode, she still signs a great deal of the time, but now we're finally hearing some basic sentences strung together as well

Pictures of your LO? Just updated in my Siggy

TTC? Not quite yet, but hoping to at this time next year!! Praying for a summer break baby (since I'm in school FT and that would be the ideal time)

For those of you who are pregnant:
Who are you? Feeling pretty good. Still have a lot of nausea. Some days worse than others.
How far along are you? I'm 17 weeks
What is up with you? I've gained 5lbs total and a little sad about that, but my weight gain is a lot less than last time. I'm sure some of it is water weight because my OB told me to increase my salt intake thanks to my low bp and dizzy spells.
Pictures of your bump/nursery/ultrasounds? Will try to post one tomorrow. I've been really bad about taking pics this time. We have our gender scan on Aug. 23rd and will definately post a u/s pic then!

For those of you who have given birth:
Who are you/who is your LO? Marina
How old is your LO? 16 months
Any good stories/milestones? She is talking up a storm. DH counted about 50 words! (That's including the noises she makes for animals.) She is a total daddy's girl and doesn't want much to do with me when he's around which makes me very sad. One of her big things lately is that she will give us kisses when we ask. She loves giving me kisses and is so sweet about it
Pictures of your LO?

Here's us petting a giraffe for the first time You can see a bit of my bump (I look at least 6 months prego )


These are at a new park in town that has a splash park included






And my bump at 17 weeks
